During the current year, pay-TV will have grown by 21%, having invoiced over $3.8 billion. However, it still comprises less than a fifth of the whole telecoms business in the country.

“The pay-TV segment has become the main growth driver within telecoms. Such dynamism comes from the important growth of satellite TV and the constant increase of subscribers driven by price reduction,” said CIU analyst, Carlos Hernández.

The trend will be similar in 2017, as the pay-TV business is set to grow by 17.3% during the next 12 months following increased subscribers, better price conditions and improved services.
